Mark Hussey has been writing music since about 12 years old
when living in Cyprus. He dropped working as a waiter when he reached 14 years
old and began touring hotels and small cruise ships, playing standards for tourists
as well as night clubs. Following his return to England in 1997, he started
various bands performing and recording his original music in styles ranging
from blues through rock to pop music.
It was very early that Mark Hussey was exposed to the blues
when his cousin Andy showed him captivating videos of Stevie Ray Vaughan. His
guitar teacher Alan White taught him Clapton style riffs. Over the last 4 years
Mark has gained great acclaim for his live performances at the KitCat club Oxford,
UK, with the house band "The Pussy Cats" while completing a PhD at
the University of Oxford.
More recently Mark has been more focused on his original blues
project and song writing for Katie Neiman. His music only became available on
his personal website in February this (2006) year and since has been awarded
countless awards on garagebands website and is currently number 1 with the song
"Runaway dog blues" on mp3unsigned.com
blues charts. This track features Tony Jezzard on Hammond and Saul Bryanston-Cross
on Bass with Marks vocals and Albert King style riffs throughout.
Recently Mark Hussey recorded a gutsy rock blues ballad called
"Some people" with a stunning vocal performance from Dom Hammond and
Gary Moore style guitar work that resulted in thousands of downloads. Music
